About Gout

Gout is a complex form of arthritis that often occurs in the joint at the base of the big toe, but can present in any joint.

What causes gout?

Gout is the result of an accumulation of uric acid in a joint. It often occurs in the joint at the base of the big toe, but can present in any joint. The onset can occur suddenly, resulting in inflammation and pain. The affected joint might feel hot to touch, swollen or tender, with even the lightest touch being completely unbearable.

Potential triggers of an acute gout flareup can include alcohol intake, diet, dehydration, stress, obesity, underlying medical conditions, injuries, certain medications, genetics, age and sex.

Why is it important to treat gout?

It’s important to know that if you experience gout, you can develop more serious conditions such as advanced gout and kidney stones. That’s why it’s important to manage your condition and any underlying causes that may be contributing risk factors.

What are my gout treatment options?

While gout comes and goes, it’s important that even during symptom-free periods you maintain a healthy lifestyle to help protect against future gout flare ups.

This includes drinking plenty of fluids, avoiding and/or limiting alcohol and sweetened beverages, limiting your intake of poultry, meat and fish and maintaining a healthy body weight.

There are two types of treatment options for gout: preventative treatment for those who suffer from frequent episodes of the condition and acute treatment options for the odd gout flare up.

In order to receive treatment for gout through Rosemary, you must already have seen a doctor, received a diagnosis and be prescribed your regular treatment by your general practitioner. An online doctor in Australia on our platform can help you access your treatment and is available to chat online about your progress whenever you need.
